Itinerary
This Molokini and Turtle Arches tour meets at Maui's Maalaea Harbor. Hop aboard your catamaran for the day and get ready for an adventure on the water. Your boat is stocked with a bar, a water slide, restrooms, showers, and even a snorkeling ramp.

First up on the day’s agenda is breakfast. Enjoy a small breakfast of fruit and pastries as you cruise the waters near Molokini. Your guide tells you about the extinct volcanic crater as you go.

You can also take a short snorkeling lesson from the onboard naturalist before getting into the water. Go toward Turtle Arches reef, and see species of fish and coral. Your guide points out wildlife you may not know about or see otherwise.

After snorkeling, enjoy a barbecue lunch and relax in the sun on the cruise back to the harbor.
